    “A suspicious person might be led to believe that this is yet another sign that Jew-hatred, rather than compassion for Palestinian suffering, motivates a lot of the Israel Outrage Industry.” (Walter Russell Mead)

    Don’t mention your suspicion to Adam Garfinkle, Professor Mead. That is unless you want him to accuse you of being obsessively Jewcentric.

    That still leaves the question of what happens to the Palestinians living in Gaza? Make a separate peace? Will Israel let in supplies if they stop firing rockets?

      Israel does let in supplies. If they stopped firing rockets and recognized Israel, I’m sure they’d find their future peaceful and prosperous (well, who knows what those crazy Egyptians will do though).

    Looking at the map there… so 64 years later (1949) they still have “refugee” camps?

    Of course, the flip side of this development is that we have to consider the possibility that Morsi’s government may in fact *not* have the destruction of Israel at the top of its “To-Do” list, and in fact might be trying to play a constructive role in the region. I realize that this isn’t the spin you’re going for here, but still. . . .

    Thanks for shining a light of truth on a very dark world.

    Excellent points. Nobody cares if Arabs kill thousands of other Arabs but yell if israel kills even one. What a world.
